AHT Insurance Named an IIABA 2018 Best Practices Agency
Leesburg, VA – October 16, 2018: AHT Insurance retains its Best Practices status, once again becoming part of an elite group of independent insurance agencies around the United States. This status is attained after qualifying and being nominated for selection to participate in the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA or the Big “I”) Best Practices Study group. The annual survey and Study of leading independent insurance agencies documents the business practices of the “best” agencies and urges others to adopt similar practices.
Since 1993, IIABA and Reagan Consulting, an Atlanta-based management consulting firm, have join forces to study the country’s leading agencies in six revenue categories. The agencies comprising the study groups are selected every third year through a comprehensive nomination and qualifying process and awarded a “Best Practices Agency” designation. The agency was nominated by either an IIABA affiliated state association or an insurance company and qualified based on its operational excellence.
The selected Best Practices agencies retain their status during the three-year cycle by submitting extensive financial and operational data for review each year. This is the third year of the current three-year study cycle, where over 1500 independent agencies throughout the U.S. were nominated to take part in the annual study in 2016, but only 262 agencies qualified for the honor. To be chosen, the agency had to be among the 35-45 top-performing agencies in one of six revenue categories.
“We are honored to be named an IIABA Best Practices Agency, a recognition made possible by the heroic efforts put forth every day from AHT’s team of professionals.” says David Schaefer, AHT Insurance President and CEO.
Founded in 1921, AHT Insurance is a full-service insurance brokerage and consulting firm offering property and casualty, employee benefits, retirement, personal and international services for a wide range of industries and boasts national recognition for practices in areas including technology, manufacturing, government contracting and nonprofits.
